Sunday Social!

Sunday Social

Happy Sunday Everyone! This is my first Sunday Social, so here goes!

1) What is your best summer memory as a kid?

That would definitely be going to grandmas house every summer. My twin and I would always go down there, sometimes for literally the entire summer. We would help her take care of the horses and dogs, pick sweet juicy apricots and eat them right off the tree, and watch Jeopardy every night with a huge bowl of popcorn. Now that we are older and have jobs ( it's mostly the jobs ) we can't get down there as often as we would like. Fortunately now she can come stay with us, like she did this week!

2) What is your favorite summer drink?

Coke Slupees are my fav during the summer! I usually get sick after I drink them ( probably due to all of the natural, healthy ingredients ) but i drink them every summer regardless!

3) What is your favorite summer TV show?

Well I haven't seen any of the episodes yet, ( I'm lame and can't stay up past midnight!) but this summer's show will be Arrested Development Season 4!!!!! I am beyond excited!!!

4) What is the best outdoor summer activity?

Swimming swimming swimming! I get hives and I can't get water in my ears, but for some reason it's my favorite thing!

5) What are your summer vacation essentials? 

Tooth brush and Pajamas: The two items that are always first on my pack list, and yet I somehow ALWAYS leave them behind.

High Five For Friday!

Happy Friday! I don't know about you, but I'm definitely excited for the weekend!

I have been looking or ways to meet other bloggers since I'm so new to blogging.I haven't had much luck with some of the other links I've tried, but I have a good feeling about this one! This week I'm linking up with Lauren for H54F!

Here goes!

My top 5 of this week, in no particular order...

1) My grandma is here visiting from California! I love my grandma tremendously, so spending time with her is one of my favorite things! All throughout my childhood I would go visit my Grandma (with my twin of course) and I would always sleep on her couch. This time, she came to visit me and got to sleep on my couch...things have come full circle!

2) One of my best friends from high school graduated from UNLV with a degree in nursing! I am so Incredibly proud of her!
 3) I went swimming for the first time this summer! Not only did I get a super cute swimsuit, but I finally got some MUCH NEEDED vitamin D ;)

4) I was able to spend some time with my twin, which is always my favorite!

5) I found out some of my products from my Etsy shop will be featured on a daily deals site June 1st! More details will be coming later!

I would love to hear about everyone's week!

Saturday Success!

      Today is the first day I have promoted my Etsy shop and I have just been blown away by the response thus far! I thought I might get to 50 likes today, but I passed the 100 mark and I am thrilled! I can't wait to see what's to come with my little shop. Hopefully lots of creating and orders are in my future!

     As far as Saturday's go, this was a pretty great one for me. My best childhood friend (Christy) is expecting her first child and she came here from Fallon to have a baby shower with her Las Vegas family! Since I've only ever been to one babyshower, I had a great time playing all the games. It is so great being able to see Christy at this stage in her life!

     Speaking of Saturday, I've got another great cat video! This one doesn't have actual cats, but they absolutely nail a cat's personality. I know so many people have seen this one, but I LOVE it! Enjoy!

Cat Lady Saturday!

Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE my cats! I think they are hilarious and incredibly adorable! I thought it would be fun to post a cute or funny cat video every week for those cat lovers out there. Here is the video I found this week, its unbelievable!

Have a favorite cat video? Leave me a comment and share it, I would love to watch it!

It's Official!

As of today, Simply Cute as a Button is officially up and running! I am so excited to start making products for others and hopefully receiving some great feedback! Here are just a few of the items I will be selling in my shop:

I have so many great ideas and a LOT of creating is going on! Stay tuned for even more super cute items coming soon!

Top Ten Tuesday!

Since I am so new to the blogging world, I thought participating in Top Ten Tuesday would be a fun way for me to get to know some bloggers! As soon as I discovered TTT, I knew instantly what my first list would be, and here it is!

Top 10 Questions I've Been Asked as a Twin.

1) If I punch her, can you feel it?
I don't know, let me punch you and I'll ask her if she felt that. 

2) Do you share a brain? (This was a serious inquiry)
You must have half a brain for even asking this question.

3) Can your mom tell you apart? 
 As far as we know, we' re the right people.

4) Are you the same age? 

5) Have you ever thought she was you?
Have you ever looked in the mirror and thought you were someone else? LOL

6) Which one is smarter?
Trying to convince some people that we both excel in different areas is darn near impossible. 

7) Can you tell each other things telepathically? 
If we could, I feel like we'd be rich. ;)

8) You sister likes this, why don't you? 
The next time I get asked this question I'm going to respond with "My sister likes this, why don't YOU?"

9) Do you like being a twin?
Let me just stop being a twin for a day so I have some basis for comparison, then I'll get back to you.

and my ALL TIME FAVORITE .....

10) Do you ever dream about selling gum?
I can't even remember who asked us this, but we dressed up as the Double-mint twins for Halloween one year just for them!

Here are a few photos of us as babies! 

I really enjoyed this first Top Ten Tuesday. I can't wait until next week!

My Very First Post!

Where do I begin?!

I suppose I should start off with a little about myself. My name is Suzanna and I am 22 years old. I am currently in the teacher preparation program at UNLV ( University of Nevada, Las Vegas) and will be graduating in the spring of next year! I seriously cannot wait to be a teacher! I have so much fun in the classroom and I know I will love my job!

I am the owner of a small cleaning company that I opened in 2010. I clean private homes and office buildings. Being a full-time student, this job was a great fit for me and I am so appreciative to have had this opportunity to support mysel
f through college. Now that I am approaching my final semesters in college however, this job is becoming more and more difficult to juggle with my school schedule. I know that one day I will have to stop cleaning all together, and I know that day is going to come much too soon. Knowing that my income will soon cease to exist, I will need to find a way to make some extra money, hopefully that is where Etsy comes in!

I have always loved being crafty and creating things, so I thought this might be a good opportunity for me. I am currently in the process of opening my shop, Simply Cute as a Button, and I am beyond thrilled with how everything is turning out! If you look at the items in my shop, you will notice there is a little of this,and a little of that! That definitely reflects my personality, and you will see that in this blog as well! Some posts will be about my shop, some about my trials and tribulations in the classroom, and some just about life in general. If I can't make up my mind about what I would like to try, I just try it all! I can't wait to see what this next year has in store for me!
